    Question DLR's Worst Lyrics ?

    Ted Templeman is quoted as saying, " David Lee Roth's lyrics are genius"

    I wouldn't argue with that. I mean Ted Templeman should know.

    But maybe the VH fan's have a different outlook.

    What are DLR's worst lyrics?

    Even though I love the song, the lyrics to Jump are definitely not among Dave's best.

    Are you kidding me?

    I get up
    And nothing gets me down
    You got it tough
    I've seen the toughest all around

    And I know
    Baby, just how you feel
    You've got to roll
    With the punches to get to what's real

    Ah-oh, hey you! Who said that?
    Baby, how you been?
    You say you don't know
    You won't know until you begin



    Fucking genius.......

    In all seriousness though, Dave was a superb lyricist. One of the best rock and roll lyricists of all-time.

    I'd take Dave's lyrics over Sammy turning a Best Western continental breakfast into a porno.
    My man, when you are fantasizing, don't go for attainable, you can get attainable at the local Applebee's. - Dave's Dreidel

    On a related subject, what lyrics of Dave's do you think may have actually been directed at Ed, Al or both of them?

    Pretty much all of them. His schtick did not age well. He was never really as clever at wordplay as he thought, and his "humor" is rather cringe.

    Uh huh. Which is why classic Van Halen is some of the most iconic music in rock & roll history. Go sell hatred somewhere else Pffft ...

    Got me a date with a supermodel,
    I know, I know, I figured "Fuck it"
    Dinner at the hotel, champagne bottle
    Steak and potatoes, a feather in a bucket

    Tell me what is it we're pretendin'?
    Not to know and who needs proof?
    I don't need so much to remember, no no
    That's how it is when you tell the truth

    How many times does somebody lie
    'Til patience runs her course
    Keep that in mind, when we say goodbye
    'Cause you can't get this stuff no more

    That's the thing about self-improvement
    Don't get me wrong, I plan on gettin' some soon
    Outside the wire somethin's movin'
    The barn burnt down, now I can see the moon

    A slice at a time, like a pizza pie
    You serve up the truth, don't want it anymore
    Keep that in mind, when we say goodbye
    'Cause you can't get this stuff no more

    Are you guys only considering VH lyrics here? Because the obvious choice is Hot Dog and a fucking Shake.
